The weather here continues to be very hot! Crazy hot actually today. Next few days are all the same!
Rick made a comment on last nights blog, about a trademark now at the bottom of the blog that says "Posted with Blogsy". (Not much gets by Rick...) Yesterday I noticed on my iPad under the App Store, that I had some updates to down load. One of them was Blogsy. They made some changes to the program to help you load pictures and videos and a few other things... Three guys developed this program, and listen to their customers and react to the comments and suggestions they make! At least the updates are free! The program only cost $5.00, and if you have an iPad, and want to blog, you will soon be using Blogsy! I like it!

After 3 years of constant use, our front door lock simply came to the end of it's life. It is a deadbolt assembly on our door, and I was able to pick up a new one at good old Canadian Tire for $15.00! All is good again. Pretty exciting day right!
Judy went into Woodstock to do some shopping and stopped by and picked up Kristina and Gwenny to help her spend all her money!
Gwenny sure seemed to be in a great mood again, and was waiving and talking to all the people in the grocery store.
Not a whole lot more on the go today, simply too hot again to do much of anything, and I still have some of this cold left that I am trying to get rid of.

Well, I figured that worked the other night when I phoned in sick… but might not be able to get away with it tonight…rats! It sure was hot here today! Mid 30’s and too too much hot sun… you had to be in the shade, nothing else would do!
Kristina called at 10:00 this morning, saying “help, it is too hot, and we need a pool… do you have one???” Yes, we have a lovely pool at our park, so out they came for the day!
This is what we did a lot of today, sitting outside as in the pic below, drinking lemonade! Gwenny had her princess hat on, as she is one!
Just give her a pool and a ball, and she is off to the races…
Our park owners, Ron and Jane, have been starting the decorating for Canada Day!
Below Gwenny goes for a dunk… she just loves it!
This is what Patra did all day today!
Have to thank Rick over at Rick & Paulette's RV Travels who put up a great blog on how to do a complete backup of your computer on your external hard drive… as it turns out, it is very simple to do of course… however, I don’t know why it is I have to read one of his blogs before I actually go and do whatever it is he is talking about! What’s with that??? Anyways, thanks Rick, we now have both our laptops backed up, and our iPad is backed up on some cloud somewhere floating over South America right about now!
RIP RIM Must say too bad about RIM, a local Waterloo based Company, that sells the very popular Blackberry! I cannot believe how fast they are falling out of grace with the public and the stock markets! Last week, they laid off 2,000 employees in Waterloo, and tonight 5,000 more. As far as I am concerned, they are done like dinner! Even though they currently have 2 Billion $$$$ in the Bank, it will not last as far as I am concerned. Move over Nortel.

Today was 29 deg. and humid... we decided to head into Town, and ran into Gwenny and her Mom, and decided to take a walk! While there are a lot of different hiking trails around, I wanted to do something a little different... we walked downtown! Imagine that! Downtown cores in many of our Towns and Cities in Ontario have taken it on the chin over the past number of years, thanks mainly to the big old shopping malls we all seem to love! Woodstock's Dundas Street, is very long, and holds lots of business... and I really enjoyed the walk today!
After all this excitement, Judy and I headed home, where I took life very easy this afternoon!
Bring on the heat!

Had to phone the Boss today and tell him I was sick and could not make it in...

Shawn and Jenn were up early and off to work, leaving the care of Emmie and Paige with Lita, the Nanny. It was really overcast in Ottawa, but the further east we headed, the better the weather got!
We brought back a gas powered pressure washer with us from Shawn's garage, and will use it to wash Chris and Kristina's deck in the next while...
On our drive today, we received a couple pictures from Kristina of Gwenny, (of course...) and she is right into playing in the sand these days in a new sand box they got for her...
Anyways, congratulations on your retirement my Dear!

This morning, we all relaxed and took life easy. Shawn and Jenn bought a new desk at Staples, so Shawn and I moved it down into the office and got it all set up. Next was some grass trimming and some wiper snipping to keep the house looking good!
I got Emmie to give me a few lessons on the iPad 3 for a while this afternoon!
Shawn has let me try out a fancy wireless keyboard for the iPad that he has, it is a bluetooth operated little device, and works great!
Jenn went searching on the internet this morning and found some pictures of Shawn at the CHEO Picnic from yesterday...
This afternoon, we all jumped in the van and headed out to the Movies!
Back to the house to enjoy and nice BBQ'd steak dinner tonight!

As our Son, Shawn, is a Dr. At CHEO, he volunteered to help out with the picnic. He helped out in the BASH Unit... (bear amblitory surgery hospital) as a surgeon! Kid's bring their Teddy Bear in, get them admitted, and then see a "Dr." to see what can be done to fix their Bear.
We relaxed this afternoon, with Shawn taking a couple hours to show me how to "REALLY" use an iPad! He uses one at the Hospital, and is a big time Techie when it comes to the latest gadgets. I now have a bunch of new iPad Apps.
